great tuners, good price

These work beautifully on my Squier VM Mustang bass. They don't fit original screw holes, however fit perfectly on the head. As previously noted by another reviewer the screws strip easily. Naturally I had filled the old holes and pre-drilled for the new ones. You need a tiny philips head w/ a decent sized handle. I stripped 2 of 16. Use caution or buy better screws before you start. Also, why not include the 2.5mm hex screw? I have 4 sets of hex screws, no 2.5 so this kit will require a trip to the hardware store. W/o that hassle 5 stars.

Adjustable Tension Bass Tuners

These seem fine quality-wise. I had no problems installing them. The bushings were a nice press fit in my Mighty Mite Jazz Bass neck. No problems with the screws either. The only difficulty I had was because of my slightly non standard usage of the tuners. My bass is strung BEAD, and the center hole in the B string tuner was slightly too small for the string. A couple minutes work with a drill fixed that. Over-all a good product.

Its a sports car with no tires...

These tuners are excellent. Period. Absolutely great tuners and especially for the price. Solid and heavy, keep great tune. BUT the screws that came with my tuners are of absolute horrendous quality. These are the some of the cheapest and worst quality screws I have ever worked with. Youre now thinking - great this guy cant work screws... That is not the case - Not only do you need a microscopic screwdriver to drive these screws, I have stripped 3 out of 3, driving these little stupid screws in... cheap pot metal! (unlike the tuners themselves) Use better screws than the ones these came with! Other than that, great product! Thanks stew-mac......

bass tuners

These are an excellent, easy on the wallet, replacement bass tuners. They are very smooth when tuning the strings; no binding at all. Would highly recommend these to anyone.

Even better than I expected!

Even though there has been good reviews, I still expected they'd still be a cheap and somewhat low-quality tuner, but they are very nice. I've been using them for a solid month now and my tuning-stabilty has been great. There's been no slop in the gears and I like the adjustable-tension feature. They also look almost identical to the factory Fender tuners I replaced. The only possible way they could be any better is if the mounting holes were to match the Fender-patter.
